Mark Ruffalo is going to be starring opposite Emma Stone in director Yorgos Lanthimos’ upcoming film adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s Poor Things. The film will be a reimagining of the Frankenstein story. Willem Dafoe and Ramy Youssef are also in talks to join the film.

The film is said to be a Victorian-set love story about discovery and scientific daring. Stone plays Bella Baxter, a beautiful young erotomaniac who is brought back to life with the brain of an infant by an eccentric but brilliant scientist.

The synopsis to the film is below:

Ostensibly the memoirs of late-19th-century Glasgow physician Archibald McCandless, the narrative follows the bizarre life of oversexed, volatile Bella Baxter, an emancipated woman, and a female Frankenstein. Bella is not her real name; as Victorian Blessington, she drowned herself to escape her abusive husband, but a surgeon removed the brain from the fetus she was carrying and placed it in her skull, resuscitating her. The revived Bella has the mental age of a child. Engaged to marry McCandless, she chloroforms him and runs off with a shady lawyer who takes her on a whirlwind adventure, hopping from Alexandria to Odessa to a Parisian brothel. As her brain matures, Bella develops a social conscience, but her rescheduled nuptials to Archie are cut short when she is recognized as Victoria by her lawful husband, Gen. Sir Aubrey Blessington.

The film is being scripted by Tony McNamara and being produced by Searchlight, Film4, and Element Pictures, Stone and Lanthimos. There are currently no details on Ruffalo’s role in the film, but the synopsis of the film certainly paints an intriguing picture. If Dafoe and Youssef agree to join the film, we are sure to be on the right path for a spectacular cast to work with on this project.
